UN AMOUR IMPOSSIBLE
Starting tonight, the play adaptation of Christine Angot’s novel Un Amour Impossible, winner of the 2015 Prix Décembre French literary award, visits the Teatre Lliure de Montjuïc.
The play tells the story of a mother, played by Bulle Ogier, and her relationship with her daughter, played by Maria de Medeiros. The narrative takes on issues of classism and incest.
Un Amour Impossible stems from the romance between Rachel, who comes from a humble family, and Pierre, from a bourgeois one. Upon getting pregnant with his baby, Rachel is shunned by Pierre, who wants nothing to do with her or the baby. He goes on to get married to a “more suitable” woman and starts his own family while Rachel raises their daughter, Christine, on her own. When Pierre comes back, sporadically, to see Rachel, things take a turn, and it will leave a bundle of issues for Rachel and Christine to sort out.
The story told on stage only takes place between mother and daughter, as the focus is on how their relationship evolves as a result of the issues they have to face together.
